Odin the South African Mastiff

This big bundle of fun’s name is Zeus. He is a 150 pound South African Mastiff, with the temperament of a really heavy lapdog!

As clear as it is, South African Mastiffs are from South Africa, and were bred with the purpose of protecting a home. Many tales talk about the speed, strength, and courage of these animals in their home country. A very smart, and large dog, they have a surprising attitude. Very protective of their families, but great with families and kids. Males tend to grow much larger than females.

Fun Fact: De Beers Mining Company actually used this breed of dog to help protect their diamond mines from thieves!
